Combining neuroscience and chemical engineering, researchers at Stanford University have developed a process that renders a mouse brain transparent. The brain remains whole – not sliced or sectioned in any way – with its three-dimensional complexity of fine wiring and molecular structures completely intact and able to be measured and probed at will with visible light and chemicals.
This interview with Karl Deisseroth, MD, PhD, explains the work and how it fits into neuroscience research and other research applications.
